Heinz tomato soup: 100 years

Heinz's product first went on sale in Fortnum & Mason, London's most upmarket department store in September 1910, the summer of Dr Crippen's trial for murder and at the same time as when the first engine-powered double decker bus entered service in the capital. The cream of tomato soup was originally manufactured in Canada.

The anniversary is being marked by Fortnum & Mason, which is serving the soup in its restaurant – as well as a fruit cake made from the soup. It is also selling soup in replica packaging to the original 1910 can.
